I don't expect anything significant.Why? I would think Intel is capable of re-architecturing the iGPU to increase perf and perf/watt. Or do you think they will be lazy and just go with a 'dumb' shrink?
End of Moore's Law scaling means it takes lot more effort and resources to do the same thing as before. With Pascal Nvidia had to significantly alter parts of the chip to raise clocks, despite it being "2 nodes ahead". Before, they would have used that effort and time for something else because much simpler process porting would net the same thing.
Can't be attributed solely to laziness when everyone is struggling. I don't believe in the conspiracy claims they are holding back either. We must simply accept computer chips are in the same advancement rate as every other tech sector not subject to Moore's Law like rapid scaling.
